View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Chess champion Garry Kasparov wrote a bestselling series of books called My Great Predecessors, ascribing his victories to lessons learned from the games of earlier champions. Now, in a humorously titled addition” to the series, Tibor Károlyi and Nick Aplin turn Kasparov’s chess wisdom on its head by analyzing 70 games he lost! Behind the good-natured humor is the important chess idea that every strategic or tactical principle has its exceptions, and the win often comes to the player who knows when standard procedure doesn’t apply. It’s a delightfully original commentary on modern chess theory, offering equal parts entertainment and instruction.

Book Description Batsford, 2009. Condition: New. Following his retirement, Garry Kasparov published a series of books in which he analysed the playing styles of his twelve predecessors as world chess champion. The authors of this lighthearted response adopt Kasparov¿s persona as they annotate more than 130 games, both famous and lesser-known, to identify moments when he lost or made serious errors by following too closely the methods of those same champions of yesteryear.

Book Description PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the past few years the great chess player Garry Kasparov has written five best-selling books praising the contributions to chess made by the previous world champions. The series is called My Great Predecessors . As a reaction to this wonderful series of books, leading chess writer Tibor Karolyi has written this imaginary sixth volume. In gently humorous - but chessically serious - style, the author imagines Kasparov is annotating over 70 of his own lost games, and blaming all these defeats on the bad influence of each of the previous world champions, providing in-depth analysis to show how he was misled by them. The book also serves as a highly instructive, practical chess book - to beat Kasparov, the greatest player of all time, took some pretty special chess, and readers will enjoy learning from this. It is astonishing how the author has managed to find so many games that exhibit uncanny similarities between Kasparov and his predecessors, which makes the content of the book extremely plausible - as if Kasparov himself were writing it. This is a brilliant and totally original chess book that could only have been written by someone with great knowledge of Kasparov and the past world champions. Seller Inventory # AA89781906388263
